The last time I participated in a game somewhat similar to this one, I won a free night — but I could not use it; so I ran a contest and gave it away to one lucky reader of The Gate. Could this scenario happen again?

The SPG Open More game ends on the same day as when members of the Starwood Preferred Guest frequent guest loyalty program will be able to participate in a a new promotion called More For You. Registration for this promotion begins on Monday, September 12, 2016.

Once you are registered and stay a minimum of two nights at a hotel or resort property between Monday, September 12, 2016 and Sunday, December 18, 2016, you will earn either Double Starpoints on stays during weekdays; or Triple Starpoints on stays which include a Friday or Saturday or — at hotel and resort properties in the Middle East — a Thursday or Friday.

More details about this promotion will be revealed within the next three weeks.

In the meantime, if you intend to participate in the contest, good luck to you — and hopefully you will not encounter any technical difficulties with which the game was fraught during its first day.

If you do win, please announce your good fortune in the Comments section below. Thank you.
